Three Flying Ibises—in Focus!
March 8, 2018
I’m not a bird photographer. I don’t have the requisite long lens to do most birds justice. But I was excited to see these three ibises flying at the Robinson Preserve and thought I’d try following them with my too-short lens. Hah! They’re in focus! The bridge in the background is the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, which connects St. Pete (no one calls it St. Petersburg) to points south. It is a very long bridge—more than four miles end to end—giving travellers plenty of time to contemplate what would happen if another ship crashed into it.
They’re beautiful, with their wings on the downbeat and their bills, too. 🙂 The bridge in the background is a nice counterpoint.

Thanks, Lynn. Not my usual kind of photograph . . .

The just-right lens, as far as I’m concerned. An elegant capture of landscape/wildlife. Nice job, Linda.

Thank you, John. You’ have a point: it wouldn’t have been a landscape if I’d had a longer lens, and it might not have been wildlife either because the image would have wobbled in my viewfinder. So I guess I can be happy!
